With dragstalgia only days away and with many people reminiscing about the old days I thought it would be interesting to post some interesting audio recordings made by Frank Wareham (the voice of Geronimo)
The consisted of Frank Wareham, John Siggery, Colin Calverley and David Gittings, Michael “Tik” Tickner who built the car and very kindly sent me the recordings.
Geronimo was an amazing dragster . It was a regular winner in Top Dragster and often took on and beat the AA fuel dragsters of the day.
These recordings not only offer a an unique insight in running the dragster back then when everything was a learning process but they also give up a listen to what was going on back then.
This is part one of a recording made at Santa Pod in 1969.
